Commonly used by authorities, dash cams are growing in popularity among drivers. Employing a dash cam in your car can help protect you. Should you be involved in a car accident, dash cam footage could provide evidence to who was at fault and help speed up the claims process. As a result, you may even avoid increases in your insurance premiums. But the benefits don’t stop there.
Fight Insurance Fraud
Aside from having record of your accident, you can help prevent insurance fraud. If you suspect the accident you were involved in, or one that you may have witnessed, may be a scam, you can turn in your video footage for review. It’s important to stop these scammers before you or someone you know becomes a victim.
Getting Out Of A Ticket
In the event that you were stopped for a traffic violation you did not commit, dash cam footage can help to prove your innocence. If the officer refuses to watch the video, you may bring it to court to contest the ticket.
Improve Your Driving Skills
Reviewing your driving footage can help you become a better driver. You can identify your weaknesses and improve upon them.
Review Your Teen’s Driving Habits
Or if you have newly licensed teenagers, you can monitor their driving habits. A two-way dash cam may help in this situation so that you can see whether they are paying attention to the road or not. Much like improving your skills, you can review the footage with your teen and offer tips or advice.
Keep An Eye On Your Unattended Vehicle
You can protect your car while you’re not in it. Most dash cams have standby mode, which is usually equipped with motion detection t activate recording. If someone hits your car, tries to break in, or causes any damage, you could potentially have footage of the responsible party. Releasing this footage to your insurance and to authorities could help you find the culprit.
Capture Unexpected Events
You’ve likely seen the incredible dash cam videos that captured the Chelyabinsk meteor in Russia or the plane crash in Taiwan earlier this year. While most of your footage may be mundane, you never know what you’ll record.
